Geocache Description:

You will have to climb fairly steep stairs to get to the top. There are no railings at the top. So be very carefull. Not recommended to visit at night...

To get to the cache area from Sultanahmet area, this is an easy way: (but of course there are other ways to get there)

Take the tramway to YUŞUFPAŞA, then at Yuşufpaşa, take the connecting metro (just around the corner) to TOPKAPI-ULUBATLI.
At Topkapı- Ulubatlı, you can walk to the cache, although it is aprox 1km away, or you can take another tramway to EDIRNEKAPI, and then walk aprox 250m to the cache:) good luck!

Cache is micro. No pencil. Bring your own.
Inside the cache are some canadian tatoos and a canadian penny and a logbook.

***NOTE: The cache can easily far from it's hiding place if it isn't replaced properly. Please be extra careful to replace the cache so that it doesn't fall!

Be sure to check out the Kariye camii. / Church of the Chora 150m away N41"01.867 E028"56.326 which contains some of the best mosaics in TURKEY.
